12 String Coffee Can Kora

I love Kora's. They look amazing and sound amazing. I didn't have a massive Gourd or any hide so i had to settle with a coffee can...

It's played with dark piece of wood between your knees with the copper pipe on your lap to keep it in place with one hand on each side plucking the strings like a harp.
It sounds pretty good, although nowhere near as nice as the proper Kora's.
